By Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Stevens Hewitt

Directed by Dana Pellebon

On a sweltering summer morning in 1892, in a small New England city, a prominent business man and his wife were brutally axed to death in their home. Their daughter Lizzie Borden was the prime suspect. Lizzie’s trial was a coast-to-coast media sensation, and her story has become an American legend. This musical version of Lizzie’s story is four women fronting a six -piece rock band, set to a blistering rock score and exploring themes of betrayal, rage, sex, and murder. Learn more at
